Welcome to CutTime Productions –
the art of inspiring the whole community!

CutTime® refreshes classical music with soul and personality to introduce the symphony to the casual and curious in restaurants, bars, clubs, homes, offices, churches and schools. CutTime is two ensembles of 4-8 musicians & the Classical Revolution Detroit series that clue new listeners in on the fun, playing from a large catalog of lively transcriptions and funky-romantic new compositions. Both staged concerts and reading events are passionate & informative as hosted by bassist-composer Rick Robinson (Mr. CutTime), formerly of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. By connecting to the wider, casual community with personal context, key insights, amplification and games, CutTime proves it’s time to cut the formality out of classical music!
